    Everything was great, apart from the beds...they were quite hard and meant we were unable to sleep very well, plus the walls are very thin! We could hear each other in the next room, but that wasn't much of an issue. For those staying in future, if you have a mattress topper, would advise taking it and maybe some earplug's if you have a noisy family ;-) Everything else was spot on and the owners were wonderful and couldn't do enough for us to make sure it was all set up and ready for our stay.

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at The Old Dairy in November 2015. The house was wonderfully warm as the temperatures outside plummeted and snow fell. The bedrooms are a good size, with lots of space for bags and the open space living area on the first floor was great. There was a nice comfy sitting area with a TV, dining table and kitchen. The footstall contained several board games for evening entertainment, while the bookcase contained lots of great advice about the local area and tourist attractions. The house is ideally located in Matlock, with the rail station and Sainsbury’s supermarket only a quick walk away (5 minutes). If you don’t fancy cooking in the evening, there are lots of friendly pubs, restaurants and take-away places in town. You can leave the house, walk along the River Derwent and up to High Tor for great views which are typical of the Peak District within minutes, I recommend The Old Dairy.

    The cottage was perfectly located, lovely and clean and equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfy too. Thank you.

    The cottage was dirty and didn't look as if it had been cleaned in a long time. The curtains in the small bedroom were hanging off the window and the clothes rail in the attic room was broken. The bathroom needed a good clean to remove the black from the sink and shower cubicle. The location wasn't good and was difficult to access as its on a very small road almost an alleyway with cars parked on one side. We certainly didn't enjoy our stay and will not be returning.

    Response from: administrator

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. We, the owners, clean the property ourselves each and every change over. Along with another cleaner we spend 2 1/2 -3 hours cleaning each time. I am sorry that this did not meet with your expectations. Some of the curtain hooks were missing in the small bedroom- thank you for drawing this to my attention, I can now replace them. I have examined the clothes rail in the attic bedroom and have not found it to be broken. I will monitor the rail and replace it if a defect does become apparent. The property is as stated in the property description, on a "narrow, 'access only' lane". The property is situated only 500 yards (approximately) from the town centre. As with most properties near town centres there is often on street parking. The property does have space for 1 vehicle in the garage and 1 on the drive. I am genuinely sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. It is a shame that I was not contacted at the time giving me the chance to alleviate some of these problems during your stay.

    Good location for the town, however, the driveway and road to the cottage are tiny, making it very difficult for two cars to manoeuvre. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired...the oven was not clean and the symbols had long worn away. Whilst staying at the cottage, we found out that this had been complained about before. The general finish of the property doesn't really warrant the top asking is very basic and appears to be either cheap or old and why are there no toilet roll holders?! Bar one which is stuck to the shower. The garden is not secure for small or curious dogs. On the plus side, the property is a good size for 4 adults.

    we had a fabulous time at the old dairy. close enough to Matlock to access everything you need super easy and on it's own quiet street so passing traffic (foot or car) was a minimum. amazing views of Matlock too. It has all the ameneties you need for a family break and would definitely recommend it to others too.

    Very good location - in quiet part of the lovely town of Matlock. Directions to property could be improved - why not use really obvious landmarks e.g. the Station, Ist set of lights? Property spacious and clean. Plenty of kitchen equipment and furniture for 7 people. Comfy beds.Could have done with chair/s in each bedroom for putting clothes overnight. Central heating effective. Also markings on oven had worn away so cooking anything involved some guesswork! Flush button on toilet in main bathroom broken so was difficult to flush. Most doors were heavy fire doors so tricky for children - 3 yr old couldn't open/close them, 7 yr old trapped her fingers in them! Also had to jam living area door open in evening to be able to listen out for children asleep. How necessary are they? Parking, or rather, getting out of parking space outside property was difficult at times as the lane outside is narrow and others use it for parking opposite property. Small niggles, most of which could easily be sorted. We enjoyed our short holiday there.
